Genoa, Nev. — There’s a new Farmers Market operator in Gardnerville if Town Board members approve a contract with Teressa Bennis of Just a Drop essential oil and gift shop to take over from Sierra Chef. The town board meets 4:30 p.m. today at 1407 Main St.

Expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 41 degrees. The wind will is forecast to pick up 5-10 mph out of the northwest. Expect the low to hit 22 degrees tonight.
